With my lease ending in about a month, Michael and I have set out to find a new place to live. It’s both exciting and stressful to search for a place where it will be just us for the first time. The stressful part, obviously, revolves around finances and the logistics of moving all of our crap from one place to the other. We applied to a place a couple of days ago, actually, and if we get accepted it’ll only be about 30 blocks south. We probably won’t have my cat until after Thanksgiving (so I can actually save up for the deposit, eek!) but it’ll be nice to have him again, eventually!
As far as exciting things go, the list could go on forever! It’ll be nice to have the entire space to ourselves and not have to worry about roommates. All in all, that by itself will make for a more relaxing home life. The entire fridge space, the cupboard space, the living room, the bathroom, and the bedroom, etc. Every inch will be ours. I cannot WAIT to decorate and fill our space! I sense an IKEA trip in the near future. 🙂
Michael has been busier than me this summer. I’ve been practicing and teaching but he’s had bachelor parties to attend (multiple friends are getting married this summer) and father-son vacation time. During those times I’ve had to occupy myself with hours of television shows and video games. An idle mind, especially mine, can be inspired to such great things! During the times he was gone I became so motivated to be creative and make things with my hands. It was a weird feeling, but I went with it. So recently I’ve decided to get into…
I’ve been wanting to do cosplay for a really long time, I just hadn’t. I’ve been too busy or wasn’t inspired enough. With my new found motivation, I began watching all sorts of tutorials, cosplay music videos, sewing tutorials, etc. I created a picture folder to put all of my ideas for which costumes I wanted to someday wear/make. The more I learned, the more excited I became. Eventually, I got my sewing machine from my mom’s house (it was my grandma’s and it was sitting in storage previously) and started shopping for some sewing essentials. The other day I got a package with fabric scissors, a pin cushion, pins, and safety pins. Seemingly unexciting things, but I was giddy opening that package up. I cannot wait to get started!
I’ve decided to do some practice sewing before I start any costumes. And even that will probably wait until after I’ve moved, for financial reasons. Also, I don’t want to move projects while I’m in the middle of them, you know?
I’m even thinking of starting a new blog just for cosplay stuff. I don’t know what I would call it or what type of stuff I would post until I started actually making stuff though. Most cosplayers have cosplay names, also. Something for me to think about, I suppose.
Anyways, I’ll try and keep you readers up to date as best as I can. PLEASE feel free to comment. WordPress tells me I have followers but I never hear from you! I don’t bite 🙂
